The bars are different, rear is narrower at the center (where it goes on the bulks), longer at the ends and bent in a different angle.

My 5 cell deck is 107mm wide.

That is the first time I've seen that TFRacing top deck. Looks like it's probably not a bad option for the people who have been wanting to run the large lipo packs in this car. Serpent will have their new parts out before long, but I that topdeck should be fine until then...

Well guys, ran the car on the weekend for the first time on carpet.

Went ok, considering 1st run of the car and motor dramas in the first two rounds I ended up 10th overall, winning the 1st B Final but had to leave for the second.

Will post setup for you guys to pick apart as I feel there were a couple of things lacking with the setup. Mainly mid corner speed. It felt as though the car was bogging down and scrubbing off speed entering the corner therefore affecting the mid corner pace. Track was tight with 2 tight hairpins. Any input would be great to develop the car on the national scene in Oz.

Ill post the setup in a minute or two

No pics here.

You can take full-size car wheelbalance weight and stick them to the side on the lipo, or on top.

Or you can put some weights on the chassis in front or behind of the lipo.

If you check out my web site at;
